and the headline is not good news. when you look in the numbers and see hurricane sandy played a role. the defense spending played a role as well as the doom and groom. you are looking for reaction from wall street and they are shrugging their shoulders. we need moreidate to see if it's a one-time blip or the beginning of a trend. >> when you see the headlines like "huffington post" saying consider yourself warned, obviously that would unsettle anyone with millions of people who have been out of work for a year or two if not more. >> right. it's similar to the poll numbers we have seen in the contest that is important to look at one piece of data and realize there is so much else out there. the numbers were not that good, but the housing sector looks better than any time since the great recession. you end up looking at payroll and the jobless claims are at a low place relative to where they were. there is a lot of hope and an adp survey that shows the jobs created in january. we will get the official numbers on friday, but positive numbers and it's important to look at the big picture. this could

. >> reporter: last quarter, defense spending fell off the fiscal cliff. as lawmakers bickered, manufacturers who make things for the pentagon cut back production sharply-- defense spending fell 22% in the latest g.d.p. report, tipping the economy into the red. >> certainly manufacturers are pulling back and i think this is a bit of a wake up call that these cuts are real and that they have real effects on the economy. >> reporter: economists and markets did not panic over the drop into the red, because the economy is still showing signs of solid growth. businesses are still buying equipment and software. housing continues to bounce back. and consumer spending held up well, expanding at an annual rate of 2.2%. >> so if you look through some of the volatile components, demand underneath was solid and it doesn't suggest the economy is losing momentum. so a scary headline number isn't as bad as it seems when you look underneath. >> reporter: and that's what economists say federal reserve policy makers did. after studying the economy for two days, chairman ben bernanke and his colleagues issued w

, on women in combat, big issue for you, i know, from your work on the defense appropriation bill, and also the gay community? >> well, i had some serious questions for chuck hagel when we sat down last week, but he answered them satisfactorily. i think senator cochran from mississippi came out and supported him, he's had a recent letter with a very strong bipartisan list of former defense secretaries, including colin powell and gates and a bipartisan group of secretaries of state and defense. i think all of that speaks to his favor, and, as i said, i was pleased to hear his responses on some of the questions i asked him about how he was going to implement things like the shaheen amendment that makes sure that women in the military who are victims of rape or incest can get access to reproductive health services, to abortion if they choose to do that. and he gave me very positive responses, even though he pointed out he's anti-choice. he said his policy would be to implement the laws that have been passed by this congress and to support the administration's policies, so i was pleased to hear

havens as now have one of the best defenses in football. little did the ravens know they would have to play defense today. this is a report according to "sports illustrated" after star linebacker ray lewis tore his triceps in october, he began using performance-enhancing drugs to speed up recovery. it's not the first time "sports illustrated" has linked lewis' name to peds and once again the future hall of fame denied any wrongdoing. >> i'm going to say it again for everybody to hear it again: that was a two-year-old story that you want me to refresh. i wouldn't give him the credit to even mention his name or his antics in my speeches or my moment. i can't do it so i won't even speak about it, because i have been in this business 17 years and nobody has ever got up with me every morning and trained with me. every test i have ever took in the nfl is -- there's never been a question. if i have ever even thought about using anything. so to even entertain stupidity like that, tell them to go try to get his story on somebody else. >> reporter: ravens c
bank blamed bad weather and cuts in defense spending. it did not announce any new action to stimulate the economy. wall street reacted by giving up some of its recent gains. the dow jones industrial average lost 44 points to close at 13,910. the nasdaq fell 11 points to close at 3,142. those are some of the day's major stories. now, back to jeff. >> brown: whither the economy? that's been the question for quite a while now. today, there was a surprising and perhaps confusing new twist. the commerce department reported that gross domestic product actually shrank in the last quarter of 2012. the drop was small, one tenth of a percent. but it was still the first time economic output had fallen in three and a half years. government spending dropped, most dramatically in the defense sector. the report, though, also contained some positive developments: consumer spending and business investment were both up. and yesterday, the so-called case-shiller index found that housing prices grew in 20 major cities by an average of 5.5% over the previous year. it was the biggest gain in six years. we

times and shooting him in the head. the defense may call arias to the stand this week. legal analyst dan abrams says that move could be a big gamble. >> on the one hand, by calling jodi arias, you are increasing the chances she could get a lesser conviction and also increasing the chances she gets the death penalty. >> reporter: she said they broke up but continued a sexual relationship. prosecutors have shown the jury gruesome evidence from the crime scene, including a picture of alexander in the shower, just before they say he was murdered. the prosecutor says she killed him in a fit of jealous rage. arias' lawyers say she was the victim of abuse by alexander. her story has changed a few times. first she told police she wasn't there. >> i'm not a murderer. >> reporter: then arias says she was there, but intruders did it. >> it wasn't me. >> reporter: timely she admitted to killing him but says it was self-defense. h >> if yesterday she was ready to say i did it and today she wants me to buy a crock called self-defense? >> reporter: whether or not she testifies on her own be

republicans have a blind eye to the waste in the defense department and the mismanagement and the duplication and the swinging revolving door from retired military officers to the very companies that end up getting the contracts that pay their salaries to get another contract to keep going on things that necessarily are not priorities. let me just take an example here for a moment, if i can, -- actually, this is the best one. here's all the programs on green buildings. anybody think that makes sense? that's why we had to have a chart this big, because it's absolutely asinine what we're doing. the duplication of what we're doing through multiple different departments in terms of incentivizing green buildings. just think about if you just had five or ten people in the administration of each one of these programs what you would save if you ended up just having five or six programs. what would the -- and what would the benefit be that would innure through the years in terms of the compounded savings for our kids and young people in this country? so when you look, here's green

with the gdp number? the gdp number was caused by the government spending, specifically defense spending. >> which was deficit spending, printing press! >> steve, you're absolutely wrong there. >> what does it have to do with the printing presses? >> what i'm saying part of it, you can't blame it all on government spending. >> yes, i can, as a matter of fact. i can blame it on inventory from government spending. >> hold on. >> would you be willing to admit that the foundation of the economic recovery thus far has been housing and that the fed by its policies of late have at least somewhat helped the recovery in housing which has helped the overall economy which has helped the stock market go up. >> what recovery? we're at a negative gdp. >> it hasn't helped housing but it's about to. >> a recovery in housing. let's at least establish that. >> you're saying leading the economy is housing. housing is doing better, but the economy is -- we have a negative print on the numbers. >> that's the best strategy. don't look at the details. only look at the top line and take it at face value. that's
can the conversation you had with your brother when you were looking for a defensive coordinator at stanford and started to talk about vic sanjio? what was that like? >> the history of that? >> yes. >> when i first met vic through the ravens, so impressed talking football with him. every time i visited there it was great to talk with vic. i'm sure that two years before we got vic, we were looking for a defensive coordinator that i asked vic 23 he would come to stanford and be the defensive coordinator and he declined. the following year he declined again. >> jim harbaugh the coach from the stanford brought a lot of coaches to the 49ers. jim is tightly wound seems to be letting loose a little bit because he wants his player to relack at the super bowl. i think you told me the harbaugh brothers might have dinner tonight? >> yes. they might have dinner tonight. i don't know if they are going to discuss football. they may want to kept that separate until after the big game on sunday. but yeah, it is a friendly brother sibling rivalry. we'll see.
are also considering ways to tackle the country's budget. automatic cuts to defense and social programs could go into effect march 1st if there is no deal. as the nation's biggest biotech firms continue to push against generic drugs, the companies are taking the fight to a new arena - state legislatures. the new york times reports that drug companies are lobbying hard for new laws that would limit a pharmacist's abilitiy to fill prescriptions with generic versions of the most profitable drugs. bills have been introduced in 8 states. generic drug companies, as well as insurers, are taking steps to try and curtail the bills. federal regulators crack down on an alleged fake flu remedy. in the midst of one of the worst flu seasons in recent memory, a florida company has been selling an untested inhaler. both the federal trade commission and the fda sent a warning letter to the flu and cold defense company about its germ bullet inhaler, saying the company's claims are misleading and its effectiveness is not proven. consumers are hearing big promises about their tax returns this year. the bet
that is necessary for hunting, sports, target practice, even self defense? >> it would be not legal for hunting in most states where there are limits on how many rounds you can have in a magazine. as i think you have recognized, the second amendment is not primarily about hunting. what i have been talking about is what the supreme court said in the district of columbia versus heller, which is the second amendment, the firearms and their accessories which are commonly owned by law-abiding people for legitimate purposes. i am talking about what police officers carry, what citizens carry, semi-automatic handguns. >> but those are police officers. >> they are not military, they're not coming to attack people, they are protecting people. citizens protect themselves the same when the police officers do. >> if you can rationalize a 100- round drum that someone can strap onto a semi-automatic weapon, as did in aurora, colorado, killing dozens of people there, saving lives only because it jammed, then you ought to object to the laws that have been on the books for years about machine guns. why are they

when authorities wouldn't. now one final sense of forboding and doom here in egypt the defense minister says failure to resolve the situation could lead to grave repercussions if the political forces do not act. it could lead to a collapse of the state and threaten future generations. that is not good news. let's bring in one of the top experts from michigan. he's the author of "engaging the muslim world," so, let's start with egypt. now, this is a complicated situation. you have mohammed morsi who did win the election. on the other hand we seem to be here in the united states helping morsi selling military equipment to him as we speak. what do we make of morsi? >> well, morsi is the first democratically elected president that egypt has ever had. he did not win by a large margin but did he win. instead of trying to governor in a consensus fashion recognizing that he did not win by a large margin recognizing that there still isn't a parliament, there are going to be elections later this spring, instead of trying to put together a national unity government, having opposition forces in his
